Cohoes Powerball Winner Revealed
A Powerball jackpot of $768.4 was won last month by a twenty four year old man in Wisconsin. Although there was only one winner of the top prize, there was also one winner in New York state of one million dollars.
On March 27th, after the Powerball drawing, we learned that a one million dollar ticket was sold in Cohoes at LePage's Market. We didn't know who the jackpot winner was until they came forward over the weekend.
According to News Channel 13, Steven Elinski and his wife Barbara claimed the one million dollar, second place Powerball ticket. Mr. Elinski said that he has been playing the same set of numbers for about four years. The New York Lottery spokesperson, Yolanda Vega, was on hand to present the one million dollar check to the Elinskis on Friday at LePage's Market in Cohoes.
Steven and his wife said that they will use some of their million dollar winnings to travel through a few countries in Europe.
